14th Annual Smithsonian.com Photo Contest
Hollywood Haze

I took this photo after hiking to the top of the Grifith Observatory trail one afternoon to watch the sunset. Once I got to the top I could see just how bad the air pollution was on that day. My initial disgust turned to awe as the changing angle of the sun began to light up the haze, casting an incredible yellow-orange glow over the entire city.
